Nature at its Most Breathtaking
In the valleys and mountains beyond Limassol there is a wealth of natural beauty to discover.
Eagles and foxes breed in the Troodos Mountains and there you will also see the moufflon, an endangered species of indigenous wild sheep. The mountains are home to varied vegetation dominated by a blanket of Aleppo pines, plus cedars and plane trees. Breathtaking nature experiences await you, particularly in the Troodos Mountains with their many romantic villages.
Since the autumn of 2008, the small mountain village of Agros, which is situated 1100 metres above the Mediterranean, can boast a very special title: It has been honoured with the "EDEN Award 2008" – and therefore forms part of the exclusive circle of "European Destinations of Excellence". This EU-sponsored prize has been awarded since 2006 to outstanding but still essentially undiscovered travel destinations to promote their development.
In Agros, everything is traditionally centred around the rose: Local companies focus on the production of rose water, sweets, wine and liquor. During an excursion here, you can discover everything worth knowing about the cultivation and production of these fine flowers and blooms – whilst immersing yourself in the world of Cypriot culture.
Captivating Cypriot Culture
Lovers of the Mediterranean region's rich cultural history will find lots to suit their tastes, not only here but throughout the whole of Cyprus: The range of museums and archaeological sites is wide and offers a unique mix of evidence from antique, Franconian, Byzantine and modern history.
